When...

Having a 'secret identity' is not considered a mental disorder.

Having a arch nemesis is normal.

You don't need a costume for Halloween.

Many of the guys/girls would make quality boyfriends/girlfriends.

No matter how many times you kill him, the villian will almost always return for more.

You meet Spiderman, Superman, Batman, or another famous superhero for coffee and donuts.

Dialogue is occasionally cheesy.

Instead of rooms, you have panels.

The villian always reveals you his plot when he thinks he has you 'right where he wants you'.

Many people have 'stero-typical' accents. (but don't we love it)

Life or death situations are normal and not at all surprising.

They're not called stalkers, they're "fans".

-When you have a super-power, but so does half de populace anyways
-When you CANNOT live a normal life. At all. Even if you're superpowers are negated. And you become an amnesiac.

-When metal skin is a fashion statement

You know you're living in a comic book when...

~A pair of glasses is an IMPENITRABLE disguise.

~You happen to wear a tight spandex outfit underneath all of your clothes, every day.

~Said spandex outfits give your spleen a regular flossing, because they go so far up in the back...:eek

~Every other person you know is very angsty...

~You live in New York City, and a fight between super-powered freaks breaks out every day at 3:00, just in time for you to come home from school/work.

~Everyone can hear you scream as you fall from a fifty story building, and yet, they all just stand around watchin' until you're conveniently saved by said super-powered people.

~Everyone in a fight has just enough time to give a ten minute long speech about righteousness, or sumthin', just before they deliver the finishing blow.

~You look like this>:D And hundreds of women find you EXTREMELY attractive, and obsess, day and night, and day and night, and day and night.....

~You never know when the next alien invasion/mutant attack/super-hero/-villain battle/'I'm going to take over the world' plot will break out, but you're positive that the news/newspaper will come on/out just in time to inform you, and then no one will really care what happens to you in the aftermath.

~You never got the bill for all the damage you caused "saving" the city from complete annihilation......

~This is your angry face>:mad , and people still happen to find you intimidating...
Purple is the color of fear!!!

People can't think of anything more exciting to name themselves then "----Man".

The police/firefighter/ambulance always arrives late.

They never do forensic work (gee what is blue fur and fish scales doing at the scene of the crime)

Has their been any arrest for vigilante justice?

How many villians have gone through court? Out of how many in the comics?

You are mortal, but you have a lifespan that matchs Tolkien's elves.

There are no search warrants?

Wouldn't it be nice if all our schools had as much money has Xavier's

How many superhero's are needed around New York? What about the rest of the US?
-and they never go after the same villains
-or wreak the city the same time as someone else
-or go by wreakage that another superhero-villian battle left
-or when they did meet decided that the other was a villian *cough* Peter and Kurt *cough*

-If you're a girl, you might consider havin' a name from a guy an' just addin' Girl to de end instead

-Despite de fact dat you're IQ resembles dat of cookie dough, you can still be a military genius
-Only normal people have cookie-dough IQs. Mutants and Superheroes have to be smart.
-Or so it seems
-Because you actually have de mental capacity of an almond
-But de media portrays you as smart

-Hybrid sounds like BAKOOM! are de new style

-No one knows who your super-power works. No one cares enough to ask.
-And if dey do, Marvel posts some dumb explanation
-Dat still makes no sense

-"Let's smash some skulls!" doesn't make you snort up your Diet Pepsi in laughter

-Your eye color changes frequently

-Sometimes your head gets busted out of a room, but really it just goes over white space dat dey call walls
-But you know dey're panels

- Anti-Vigilante justice teams always let you go wit' a warnin'

-De police leave crime scenes up to you
-An' never give you permission to crack some heads open, either verbal or written, but are grateful when you do so

-Guys are always taller den 6'0". Except Logan.

There will never be more blood than needed.

No guys are ever kicked in the nether regions.

Speaking of said nether regions, you're shirt, pant legs, and shoes will be ripped to nothing but fabric around your crotch area (and bosoms, if you be female) are unharmed every time.

Clinton, Bush, and other recent world leaders never existed.

We can battle stuff on the homefront, but solving stuff in the Middle East is unfathomable.

Even if your arch enemy lives five feet away from you, you'll NEVER get the chance to kill him/her.

You are always saving your giant breasted EXTREMEly beautiful, smart, funny, beautiful, intelligent, beautiful possible girlfriend, yet:

- Your arousal never shows, despite wearing spandex

-You work and speak with her everyday and she doesnt even recognise your voice????!

Also:

-Nobody sees you changing into your costume through the glass telephone booth

-You never get a wedgie in that oh so tight uniform

-Glasses on, hair normal- "Oh hi Clark"
Glasses off, hair slicked- "Superman... why ever are you wearing Clark's clothes?"

- There's exactly one gay guy in the entire universe.
- You have conversations with your friends where you catch each other up on everything that's happened lately, being careful to mention everyone's names and powers, so that new readers can follow what's about to happen.
- When you think all your friends have died in a tragic catastrophe, you're heartbroken but forget all about the last three catastrophes that supposedly killed them.
- You wear your costume around the house, not just when you're on duty. (Kurt does this all the time - are the editors afraid we'll forget who he is, maybe mistake him for some other furry blue guy with a tail?)
